If you want to add some flare to a party, wedding, or even your holiday gifts, you might consider a custom wine label. There are many options online. Some companies sell just labels for you to place on the bottle. Others offer a selection of wines, and they apply the labels, while a few wineries will customize their wines with your labels.

Here are just a few custom label options we uncovered.

Stoney Creek Wine Press
This company does one thing: makes custom wine labels. They have an extensive list of pre-designed labels with space to allow you to customize the label with words or pictures. Labels vary in price, but some are in the $0.30 to $0.40 per label range. The company also sells beer labels and tracks orders so you can reorder or re-customize.

Bottle Your Brand
You can label your own water or wine with this very affordable option. Some custom wine labels are as low as $0.13 a label.

Personal Wine
This site is one-stop shopping. You design a label, choose a wine from an international selection (Chilean, French, and domestic offerings), and order your wine. Pricing varies.
If you don’t want to take the time to stick an actual label on your favorite wine, but you want to customize it, this company creates personalized tags, coasters, and wine boxes which will do the trick.

Save a step and buy customized labels direct from a winery. Here’s a couple we found that add a fee to your wine order to create specialized labels for you.

Millbrook Vineyards & Winery
This Hudson River winery in New York State produces sparkling wine, merlot, a selection of pinot noirs, chardonnay, and cabernet franc, labeled for holidays, weddings, or for corporate events. The labels cost $24 per case, with volume discounts.

Northwest Cellars
Washington State winery offers three red blends and three white choices with custom labels. They have an artist to do the designing or allow customers to mail in their own design. A fee of $85 will be added to an order for custom labels.

The first thing to do before any of these wine making steps is to thoroughly clean and sanitize your equipment. Next, check the directions provided with your wine kit and take an inventory. Are all of the ingredients included? If so, the next step will be to sort out the ingredients to be used for primary fermentation and those to be used for secondary fermentation.

IMPORTANT NOTE - Pay close attention to which ingredients you are adding during this first step. Not all of the packets should be added at this time. In fact, doing so can ruin your wine! Ingredients such as sulphite, sorbate, clarifiers, and finishing or sweetening packs will be used later in the process after primary fermentation has completed.

Clean and sanitize the following equipment:

  • Primary Fermenter (Bucket, Carboy or Big Mouth Bubbler)
  • Airlock
  • Hydrometer
  • Spoon

After everything is cleaned and sanitized, you’re ready to begin.

  1. Fill your fermenter with a half-gallon of warm water
  2. Add the package of bentonite from your wine recipe kit and gently stir until dissolved
  3. Pour in the large bag of grape juice concentrate
  4. Add water to reach 6 gallons of total liquid in the fermenter
  5. Take a gravity reading with your hydrometer and make sure the reading is in the range specified in your recipe kit and record for future reference.

NOTE - Your wine kit may come with some additional ingredients that need to be added at this time. These ingredients may include items such as grape skins or oak chips. If your kit includes those, add them now. Please note these additional items should be added AFTER you have filled your fermenter to the 6 gallon mark with must and taken your gravity reading. (Must is the term for unfermented grape juice in your fermenter. The must may contain grape skins, seeds, and stems.)

  1. Open the yeast package, and sprinkle it on top of the must. No need to stir in the yeast, it will start moving on its own.
  2. Seal the fermenter with the lid, insert the airlock, then add water to the fill line on the airlock.

Set the fermenter in a place that will have a consistent temperature of 65º-75ºF. You should see signs of fermentation in the airlock in 24-48 hours.

Equipment Necessary for Making Wine

There is some equipment that you will need to make your wine. We will talk about the necessary equipment and the nice to have the equipment. There are winemaking equipment kits available to get you started making wine today. In this guide on how to make wine we’ll talk about some of the equipment you need to produce your wine.

Fruit Crushers

First of all, when you are making wine you need to be able to crush your fruit to release the juice. Believe it or not, the skin on fruit can be very tough to break to release the juices. This is where a special machine called a fruit crusher comes in. Fruit crushers take the fruit and run them through metal gears that will mash the fruit into a pulp and release the juices so our yeast can feast on this delicious nectar. The fruit crusher is not entirely necessary for small batches. You can manually crush things like berries with a potato masher or your hands. You could even go the old-fashion route and mash your grapes with your feet. Either way, you need to release the juice from the fruit. You don’t need to purchase a fruit crusher right now but it may be something you will want to look into if you get serious about this hobby.

Fruit Press

Fruit presses are also a way to extract juice from fruits or grapes. When making a white wine you will crush your grapes and then immediately press them to get only the juice for fermentation. For red wines, you want to ferment with the skins to extract the flavor and colors of the skins. Then after your primary fermentation, you will take the skins and pulp and put them into the press to extract the remainder of the juice. I press is another item you may want to purchase later on in your journey but it’s not 100% necessary for the beginner. You can put your fruit pulp into mesh bags for fermentation then squeeze the bags to act as a press. I’ve done this successfully with berries but I think you would have a tougher time with grapes.

Other Wine Equipment

In our guide on how to make wine, we talked a little bit about wine equipment kits above but I wanted to get a little bit deeper into what you really need to make your wine. You can find everything you need in our comprehensive article about winemaking equipment kits here. To start you will need a food grade bucket and a towel to cover this bucket. You will use the bucket to do your primary fermentation. This is where you will mix all of your ingredients, add the yeast, and let the magic happen.

Next, you will need a glass container called a carboy. You can get this in 1, 3, 5, and 6-gallon sizes. You will need an appropriately sized carboy to the amount of wine you are making as air space is very important in the carboy. You want a minimum amount of “headspace” in the container because wine can oxidize and turn brown if it comes in contact with too much air. You really want to buy a glass carboy as plastic is porous and could lead to more air coming in contact with your wine.

The next piece of equipment is a simple but ingenious invention known as the air-lock. An air-lock is a plastic or glass device that fills with water and allows CO2 to escape the carboy but doesn’t allow air to enter. This is essential for keeping your wine from spoiling.

You’ll also need a siphon to transfer your wine from container to container. We don’t pour wine because you will have a lot of sediment that is made up of fruit pulp and dead yeast at the bottom of your container. You use a siphon to transfer only the juice and leave the nasty stuff behind. I recommend an auto-siphon, which is a siphon with a built-in hand pump to get it going but you could also just use a plastic hose.

Obviously, you will need bottles when it comes time to bottle your wine. You can save old wine bottles and wash them out and remove the labels. Make sure to rinse the bottle immediately after finishing it so no residue is left over. You need corks for the bottles. It’s not recommended to reuse corks as they could harbor bacteria and spoil your new wine. Then you will need a corker to push the corks into your bottles. There are several types but a hand corker is cheap and will do the job for most home winemakers.

A plastic stirring utensil is necessary to stir your wines when adding ingredients and daily. I mentioned mesh bags earlier in this article but they can also come in handy if you are adding fresh fruit to your wine. A wine thief is a nice tool to have as it can take samples of your wine for you to test.

A really important tool to have is a hydrometer and a hydrometer test jar. The hydrometer is used to measure the level of sugar in your must (the mixture before it becomes wine). This is known as the specific gravity of the liquid. You use this to determine if you need to add sugar or not. You can take a reading of your must and then your wine after fermentation and use this to calculate the amount of alcohol in the beverage.

There’s finally a dessert that we won’t feel guilty about not sharing with our kids. The old favorite, gummy bears, have gotten an upgrade and can now be found infused with delicious wine. It’s the perfect adult-only snack for any season. And if you’re a lover of DIY projects we’ve got the recipe so you can make some wine-infused gummies at home.

Before we get down to the specifics, let’s discuss how we became so lucky to be alive at the same time as this genius invention. Sugarfina grabbed a bottle of their Whispering Angel rosé wine and headed to the kitchen this past June. The result was a “lightly fruity, sweet and tangy” wine-infused gummy bear, Today reported. The candies sold out in two hours, and more than 18,000 people joined a wait list to get their hands on these treats.

Sugarfina’s all caught up on orders now, but you can’t expect to get a buzz from the snack. The rosé is burned off the in the cooking process, so their gummies have the same flavoring as the famous wine but not much alcohol. But the ladies behind “Cooking With Janica,” Jessica Pinney and Janette Staub, decided to make their own gummy bears that do pack a punch in the booze department. They were kind and shared their process so we can all have some fun in the kitchen. “I do love Rosé, but I thought why stop there,” Pinney wrote on their blog post that’s going viral. “I’m going to make wine gummy bears of all types. Red, White, and Rosé. It almost sounds patriotic.”

Hiding booze in food does sound pretty American to us. The ladies claim it’s not that hard to make, and you’ll only need a few things: two gummy bear molds, some gelatin, and a little sugar. “If you’re like me and want to keep them boozy, make sure you monitor it closely with a candy thermometer,” Pinney shared in the blog post. Hell to the yes we want them boozy. According to the recipe goddess, “to retain the alcohol, it needs to stay at 90 degrees or below.”

Temperature is key to making your gummy wine dreams a reality. We haven’t hit the test kitchen yet, but the “Cooking With Janica” ladies have already tried out all of their wine-infused snacks. “I think they truly turned out to be tasty. The red wine gummy bears were my favorite, while Janette was rather fond of the Rosé,” Pinney said. The ladies also had some great ideas for additional flavors like champagne-infused gummy bears that we can’t wait to try out. If you make ’em, be sure to mark your treats with an “Only For Mommy” label, so you don’t find the kids red-lipped and giddy.

The ladies behind the recipe also made a handy video showing you exactly how to make the wine gummy bears that you can watch below.

Customer service to die for

What You Need to Include On Your Wine Labels

Aside from capturing the attention of your customers, the other purpose of your wine label is to provide vital information about your wine. The details will matter especially for wine connoisseurs who might care more about where the wine comes from and how it’s made more than a novice wine drinker, or for anyone with relevant health concerns. On top of that, there are also label requirements that you need to follow. If you don’t want to miss out on anything, here are some of the most important things that you need to include on your wine label:

Brand Names
You can usually find two brand names on most wine bottles. One is the name of the company or winery that produced the wine, which is often located at the top or bottom of the wine label. The other is the secondary name of the wine, which helps in branding different wines from the same winery.

Vintage is the term used to indicate the year when the grapes were harvested. It is also a good way to know the quality of the wine. The general rule of thumb is that the more vintage the wine is, the better the quality.

Wine Type
The type of wine in the bottle is required to be shown in the wine label. You need to indicate if it’s a Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, or a Chardonnay among many others. Wines that derive less than 75% of their volume from the specified grape can only use a generic name like “red wine”.

Appellation or Region
The region where the wine is made must also be included in your wine label. However, it is a little more complicated than just saying the geographic location of the winery. If you used a state or county in your wine label, it is federal law that at least 75% of the grapes used in producing your wine must come from this location. For AVAs or American Viticultural Areas like Napa Valley, at least 85% of the grapes must come from the area. Other states also have their own regional laws so be sure to look them up before creating your wine labels.

Producer & Bottler
If the wine is made from another location that is different from the winery or vineyard, both the name and address must be printed on the label.

Alcohol Content
Similar with other alcoholic beverages, the percentage of alcohol by volume (ABV) is required on the label.

Net Contents
The amount of wine in the bottle must also be present on the label. Most of the time, the number is expressed in milliliters or liters.

Sulfite Warning
If the wine has more than 10 parts per million of sulfur dioxide, the wine label must have a “Contains Sulfites” warning.

Government Warning
Typically found at the back of the wine label, the the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Trade Bureau (TTB) requires every label of an alcoholic beverage contain this government warning:

(1) According to the Surgeon General, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects.

(2) Consumption of alcoholic beverages impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.”

If you want to learn more about label requirements, we recommend visiting the wine labeling page of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Trade Bureau (TTB).

Try Out Some Software

Downloading free and trial versions of wine label software is a great way to explore different programs before making a purchase. Keep in mind that most trial versions only include partial features of the full program, and most free programs are not going to have as many features as even the partial trial programs. So, take the programs for a test drive and find which ones you love and then buy the full program. Keep an eye on the price of these programs though, some can have a high price tag.
